FRESNO, Calif. (AP) ' Heavy snow and strong winds have rushed into California's Sierra Nevada for an overdue blast of winter.

National Weather Service forecasters on Wednesday posted winter storm warnings for blizzard-like conditions with five feet of snow and 60 mph winds possible through Thursday afternoon.

Snowfall rates up to four inches an hour are expected along the Sierra Crest.

The California Department of Transportation says chains are now required for Interstate 80 travelers from Placer County to Nevada County.

Strong winds and rain are forecast in the San Francisco Bay area. Caltrans says travel isn't recommended for big-rigs, motor homes and those pulling trailers.
